“I had an incredible time on this trip!!"
The actual trek itself is spectacular of course but every aspect involving the trekking company could not have been better. Our guide (Wilfredo "Willy" Lopez) was friendly, knowledgeable, caring, spoke perfect English, and was generally awesome to be around. He brought our group together into a true family by the end of the five days, and the whole time he genuinely seemed to be doing the trek for the first time he was so excited to be there.
The rest of the team was just stellar too. The chefs made the best food I had anywhere in Peru and some of the best food I've ever had, and the rest of the team did a tremendous job with all of the driving, organizing, carrying tents, shifting packs from A to B etc. A really mammoth task when you're coordinating 12 people over the Andes.
You can tell that they really care about bringing us the best experience possible and at every opportunity they go above and beyond to do so.
It was a dream come to true to trek to Machu Picchu I can't imagine it being better than what these guys provided for us.
100% absolutely recommend them.Visited June 2015
